Competition and antitrust
Competition and antitrust laws around the world are rapidly evolving. Authorities are increasingly using a wide range of powers to investigate mergers, markets, cartels, contractual arrangements between competitors, suppliers and distributors and alleged abuses of dominant market positions.
As more regimes become established, and as investigative powers and penalties become more severe, the risk of falling foul of these complex laws has never been more acute.
No other firm can match the depth of experience our international team has in this area.
Clients come to us for advice on the complete range of antitrust/competition, regulatory and trade issues spanning merger control and joint ventures; restrictive practices; market dominance; cartel investigations and related litigation; market/sectoral investigations; state aid; competition litigation; licensing and distribution; intellectual property; liberalisation; public procurement; and trade/WTO matters.
With more than 50 partners and 260 experiences lawyers based in Asia, Europe and the US, we are able to support clients wherever and whenever they need us. In those jurisdictions where we do not have offices, we have established strong relationships with recognised local law firms to provide clients with a seamless international service.
